Most of the time you'll be teaching students from their own textbooks to help them with class work. If you do need further resources the local Teacher Store will have what you need. You will probably develop your own tutoring toolbox with learning aids that you enjoy working with, like flash cards, learning software games, workbooks, etc.
How do you get Started?
It's as simple as saying I'm a tutor, well ok not that simple but it can be somewhat easy. Simply spread that word among your family, friends, neighbors, church, etc. that you have opened a children's tutoring business. Let them know what you are specializing in and more than likely your first student or students will come from friends or neighbors.
Besides sharing the word among friends and family it would also be beneficial to you to let your local schools know about your services. Call and speak to the principal or teachers that work in the area that you are specializing in.
There are many great benefits to starting your own tutoring business - flexible schedule, fulfillment of helping others, and the ability to have your own home based business are just a few. If you enjoy working with children and are patient, then a children's tutoring service business may be just right for you.
